    Should I accept credit for my Spanish 1, Spanish 2, Spanish for Native Speakers 1 or French 2 course?

    Can I accept credit for one semester, but not the other? 

    No. You must either accept the full credit or decline the full credit. 

    What happens if I do not accept the credit? 

    You will have the option to retake the course in high school, if the course is offered.
